Today's Training and Nutrition and Question

"If you don't know what you want, you end up with a lot you don't," said the Doorman in Fight Club. Is that you? Feeling a little misguided?

Here's the solution:

Create a vision for your life using this video

If a goal is really important to you, then get up 15-30 minutes earlier every day and work on it then. Get work done first thing in the morning so that you do not let others steal your precious time. on to health and fitness updates.

My Training today: Jumps, Squats, Step-ups, Leg Curls, Stability Ball Plank Rollouts, Get-ups. Started a new 4-week program today and so the weights were "intro/deload" level. 60% of normal. Good to try out exercises I haven't used in a while (BB step-up and KB Get-Up).

Today's After-Training Blender Drink was also a winner.

Orange-Banana Tropical Creamsicle

- 4 oz water
- 1 cup Greek yogurt (plain)
- 1 orange
- 1/2 banana
- 2 scoops BioTrust vanilla cream whey protein
- 2 handfuls of spinach (you can't taste it, trust me!)

Last night's dinner...was not Paleo (not that I'm eating Paleo) because I had beans and yogurt and protein powder. And I used a stove. But I don't think beans are allowed on a Paleo diet.

So just to be clear, I don't eat Paleo.

Then again, Paleolithic's didn't have blenders, so I was ruled out long ago.


- 1 can black beans
- chopped mushrooms and onions
- 1/3 of a large avocado
- lots of tomato sauce (organic, no sugar, of course)
- added some spices that Lesa Gutenkunst, CTT, sent me for Christmas
- all cooked in a skillet (I cook with organic butter)

Really great, but not a lot of food, so...

- 1/2 orange
- 1 cup Greek yogurt + 1 scoop chocolate protein powder

No wine, and surprise, surprise, I slept great.

Gotta lay off the red because I know next week's business trip to Miami with Joel Marion, Bedros Keuilian, and 50 other fitness experts will lead to late nights and big dinners.
